Behold! The Mully Cup

Mully Cup

In May we called for ideas for the Mully Cup.

In memory (if not honour) of Justin “Mully” Williams who sparked 480 plus comments in his spectacular crime purging exit from this mortal coil the trophy has been awarded virtually four times so far.

Each month it is awarded to the individual who has prompted the most contentious debate on the website.

On Saturday a RiotACT command group assembled the above trophy.

With three cans of Woodstock and Cola it is an alcoholic beverage. It has a mullet and a popped collar. A Holden hubcap forms the base. It is triumphant and exuberant.

It is the Mully Cup.

The delicate colours of the flannel don’t work too well with her nail-polish.

Caltex in Excels or Caltex in Excelsis gets my vote.

It just inspires me to be more of a scumbag winner. I want to kill more innocent babies then mully and CaptRAAF put together. Then I might win. That might be a lot of babies. How many babies do you need to kill to win a mully? Obviously the more babies killed the more posts about baby killing outrage. The more likely to win.

Babies are hard to find untended. Could I kill policemen. How about killing aboriginals do they count. I suppose not as Id need outrage posts. So that rules out bogans, scum-bags, druggies, cyclists, black people, the mentally ill and politicians.

If we are all ok with killing and the dead, I suppose it does not matter who it is. It all funny.

Fair enough. I can see how this would work for her. Shame though, a couple of hundred grand could go to a better cause.

Just watch, she’ll piss that money up the wall so hard.

If your car is unregistered there is a scheme called “The Nominal Defendant” setup by the government. This scheme acts as the CTP insurer for unregistered vehicles.

If you are injured as a result of the actions of the driver of an unregistered vehicle the Nominal Defendant will provide CTP type coverage for you [the person injured by the driver of the unregistered vehicle]. What the Nominal Defendant then does is seek recovery from the driver of the unregistered vehicle [not the owner] for any amounts they have paid out for the claim.

Some drivers of unregistered vehicles have received some VERY large bills from the Nominal Defendant. I am aware of a couple of recent matters where the Nominal Defendant has commenced Court proceedings against drivers of unregistered vehicles, with the individual amounts being several hundred thousand dollars, and over a million dollars in one case. Most of these people take the easy option and go bankrupt.

The fact that the car was stolen is generally irrelevant in CTP claims.

Fair enough I guess, but what if he had stolen an unregistered car? (ie no CTP?)

If I have a unregistered car in my front yard, which is perfectly legal to do, and some Mully pinches it, surely I am not responsible for the people he hits?

You should not be as the TPI in the ACT only lasts for 15 days after the registration runs out. Once that has gone then the third party is not covered in the event of an accident.

I am assuming that the vehicle he was driving was fully registered & insured. Its just the legalities of suing after it has been stolen that I am not dure of.

Sadly, there are probably a bunch of victims of Mully’s crimes who will never see any compensation. Sometimes even a relatively minor crime like burglary or car theft can take away a person’s freedom and sense of security. This is magnified for the elderly. One way or another we all pay for the stupidity of Mully and those who tagged along with him for the ride.

The plan is to add more hubcaps. If we lay down three in the next tier that should get us some years into the future.

Out at the R shop they’re $2 each.

We’ve got plenty of free ones leaning against light poles in Kambah, and you’d be doing a valuable public service!

The fact that the car was stolen is generally irrelevant in CTP claims.

The insurer may well argue that there was a “voluntary assumption of risk” on her part [i.e. she should have known that getting into a stolen car with the infamous Mully was fraught with danger]. Even so, this would most likely only reduce the amount she ends up getting. As an example, if it could be found that her own actions were 50% the cause of her injuries, this could reduce her compensation by 50%.

The fact that there was contributory negligence on her part, won’t stop her from getting something, but may reduce the amount [i.e. she may well say that she had no reason to expect that Mully would drive like a madman once she got into the car, or that he would run from the police and do a zillion miles an hour and run into a tree].

I don’t remember what her injuries were, but I recall they were quite serious. Depending upon a whole lot of factors, she may well end up with a couple hundred grand, depending upon current and future loss of income, future medical care needed etc. Also, one thing on her side – this happened in the ACT, and we all know how generous/lenient the ACT Courts are.
